The final votes are in on our first Loosepucks.com Awards. A poll was conducted among over 30 OHL writers and broadcasters to finalize the Loosepucks.com 2007-08 OHL Award Winners. Voting was conducted using first and second place votes, with each worth five and three points respectively. The first categories to be announced -- Coach and GM of the Year -- have both been won by the Windsor Spitfires.
The Round 2 schedule between the Kitchener Rangers and the Sarnia Sting has now been set:
Just about every series that could have ended up Thursday night did, leaving OHL fans will a pretty quiet weekend.
The Steven Stamkos show was in full effect Tuesday night at the Sarnia Sports & Entertainment Centre. The expected first overall pick in the 2008 NHL Draft scored four goals to pace the Sting to a 5-4 win over Windsor.
The on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again relationship between the Canadian Football League and the nation's capital is back on - with an OHL flavour to it.
Poor ice conditions at The Dow Event Center in Saginaw has forced the cancellation of Game 2 of the OHL Western Conference Quarterfinal series. This has resulted in some scheduling changes moving forward.
The OHL has suspended Brampton Battalion forward Kody Musselman for today's game against the Barrie Colts.
The Windsor Spitfires will have to continue their first round playoff series for the next three games with overage forward Bradley Snetsinger.
Here are some random thoughts from around the second night of the 2008 Ontario Hockey League playoffs.
The 2008 Ontario Hockey League Playoffs are officially underway, and it was the Belleville Bulls who were in control for almost the entire game.
OHL items often show up on eBay, but an item that I found on there certainly has to be considered a classic.
The West Division rivalry heats up once again as Windsor and Sarnia will play each other in the opening round of the 2008 OHL playoffs.
The OHL has sent a clear message to its players, wear the neck guards or don't play.
Due to some technical difficulties I am not able post this week's edition of OHL News to the Ontario Hockey League website at the moment. But for anyone (including OHL radio/media types) looking for it, I figured it would work to post it here for the time being.
When the Owen Sound Attack season comes to a close this weekend, at least one player will still have some hockey to play.
With only a few games remaining in the OHL Regular Season, Sarnia's Steven Stamkos has certainly solidified his spot as the top North American player eligible for the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. In the process he continues to do things that make fans in Sarnia stand up and cheer.
Thursday night's action in the Ontario Hockey League had something for just about everyone.
The Nashville Predators have inked Plymouth Whalers goaltender Jeremy Smith to an entry-level contract. The Brownsville, Michigan native was picked in the second round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He was the starting goalie for Team USA at this year's World Juniors and became Plymouth's number one netminder when Michal Neuvirth was dealt to Windsor.
There may be some around Kitchener that think the Rangers gave up too much for Steve Mason, Sunday night in Sarnia he proved his value.
Another night of OHL action in the books, and the Western Conference continues to show that nothing is doing to be decided until the final weekend of the regular season.
Welcome to March, just 16 days remaining in the Ontario Hockey League regular season. With plenty to be decided, the final 2+ weeks of the season will be quite interesting.
